Project Drawdown is running an EcoChallenge from April 3 to April 24, 2019. I'm going to be traveling for most of it, but would this be something we might want to as a Sunbeam Team? I haven't had a chance to dig through everything yet, but it seems interesting.

Yeah, you're very right that we are talking about something that can be dangerous if mishandled, and sometimes even if handled correctly, so it should be treated with weight.
However, I would also argue that there are many things in daily life that are extremely dangerous yet we give them to young people with minor or zero tests, such as cars, and that the main difference is just social acceptability - once we see the right to total bodily autonomy to be as important as driving a car, I'm positive change will come.
It makes me sad that this time is probably many decades in the future.

yeah agreed! i think part of ut is that trans folks are pretty cutting edge w/r/t bodily autonomy, and being able to make the choices about how we want out bodies to look and function. most people don't see that as role medicine can/should fill yet. And that is furthered by the medicalisation and othering of transness... but also those things are reasons that help us get insurance coverage for the shit we need so 🤷♀️🤷♀️
@lynnesbian I wonder how many people learned metallurgy from RuneScape
Just read this newspaper article about a guy named Andrew Yang who is running for president on the platform of universal basic income, and is planning on campaigning with mobile tupac style holograms. Normally I vote 3rd party to piss off the "ur ThROWning AWaY uR voTE" status quo maintaining defeatists, but this guy might be crackpot enough for me to vote for a democrat next year. Well anyway, at least this election is going to be more interesting than the boring one in 2016.
Hallelujah! You cast a weird spell from an old book that turned you into a huge jaguar! #AlwaysChanging

@rekh127 I don't care about the Catholic Church, that's not the point. Attacking lay people for being Catholic (and I'm not Catholic) is religious bigotry. I have lost family and have almost been murdered in more than one arson attack because of the crime of being raised Catholic. People from WASP countries saying "being bigoted against Catholics [not the catholic church] is good" is not only sad and bigoted but makes light of the countless deaths and trauma that I and other people have had to endure.
biodegradable disposable cups made from gourds grown in 3d printed molds. sustainable, cheap, eco-friendly. fantastic idea. purpose-grown plants are the future of common household items. why use a semi-permanent petroleum product for something that can be done with what pretty much is elf magic?
